"If someone or something (such as a collection of facts or other strong evidence), could show you that you don't have 'the truth,' would you want to know?
How do you think you might have answered when you still believed? I think that most people would say "no." They would not want to know... or they would say that no one or no thing could ever show them otherwise. I am trying to imagine what my wife would say... I will have to ask her someday when the time is right. I think they would not want to know because they aren't really in the religion because they have strong fervent belief. They are in it for the social structure, because it gives them a little bit of a voice, an opportunity to express themselves, and a way to "fit in."
I no longer believe in God. I fully accept evolution and all the scientific facts that support it. If someone asked me that question about my beliefs now, I could honestly answer "Yes. I definitely want to know." There is nothing really that holds me to my acceptance of a godless universe and evolution as the explanation for how life progressed. I would CERTAINLY be interested, because I would have nothing to lose if it was not true, and that's the beauty of the scientific process... there is always room for doubt and an open door for evidence that would prove something previously held to be true, to be wrong.
Has anyone ever asked this question to a JW?
